The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) has chosen Antalya in Turkey for its 2014 congress.
Antalya beat bids from Houston, Texas and Monterrey, Mexico to host the 53rd congress.
ICCA CEO Martin Sirk said: “Each year the standard of bids for the ICCA Congress gets higher and higher, with exceptionally creative ideas and teamwork.
“Passing on the bad news to the unsuccessful candidates is probably the worst part of my job, since I know how much passion, hard work and inspiration went into creating the bids of Houston, Texas and Monterrey, Mexico.”
ICCA’s 50th Congress, incorporating the ICCA General Assembly, will be held in Leipzig, Germany from 22 to 26 October this year. The annual event is expected to bring together approximately 1,000 senior level professionals from the meetings industry for networking, high-level education, exchange of business and tailor-made expert advice.
The 51st ICCA Congress will take place in San Juan, Puerto Rico on 20 to 24 October 2012, and the 52nd ICCA Congress will be held in Shanghai, China on 2 to 6 November 2013.
